    I have been working at Qualcomm full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Long history of work in the wireless field, very intelligent co-workers and good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Work can be repetitive at times, getting good projects might be a little difficult and plenty of politics (as with any big company) when it comes to climbing up.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be serious about allowing people to switch projects/tasks more often and not penalize them during reviews for trying new things.

    Interview

    I had a technical telephonic interview which lasted for about 45 minutes. I had applied online on their website and got a call in 2 weeks time to schedule for a telephonic interview.
    I prepared a lot of basic C interview questions and fundamentals of OS. I should have done more preparation regarding some of the projects that I worked on as I was not very confident in the way I explained to him some of the OS fundamentals that was used in some of my relevant projects.
